Description
Description: In recognition of the grave threat posed worldwide by drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB), in November 2008 the Institute of Medicine's (IOM's) Forum on Drug Discovery, Development, and Translation held a workshop titled “Addressing the Threat of Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis: A Realistic Assessment of the Challenge,” which brought together experts in drug-resistant TB and public health to speak frankly and openly about the problem. That workshop led to plans for four additional workshops in countries with a high burden of drug-resistant TB. The first of these workshops, summarized in this volume, was held in Pretoria, South Africa, on March 3–4, 2010, with subsequent workshops being planned for Russia, China, and India. The workshop brought together about 65 disease experts, community leaders, policy makers, and patient advocates from South Africa, other countries in southern Africa, and the United States for 2 days of intensive discussions. The workshop was supported in part by the Doris Duke Foundation, by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and by the U.S. Department of State.
